This roasted rib of grass fed Aberdeen Angus is the best roast beef you will ever taste.
This is not a cheap cut it is for a special occasion so you want to cook it right.
The recipe below is simple enough. Stick to the timings for perfect rib beef.
The most important step is resting your beef after cooking. Allow enough time to rest for half the cooking time.
But firstly you need to choose a quality butcher, one who knows good beef.
I rarely advertise anyone on this site but the place to go for what in my opinion is the finest beef you can find is Donald Russell.
They are an online butcher here in the UK that I have used for years and I trust them.
When you look at the images in the slider above you will notice that the meat is well marbled throughout and properly butchered.
This marbling is typical of well matured premium grass fed beef.
Also notice the cut and how it’s trimmed and tied. What I do is cut the bone off and then tie it back on. This makes carving at the table a breeze.
Your butcher will do this for you. If you are not sure what to ask for take a picture with you.
- 2.5 - 3kg Grass fed rib of beef well trimmed bone in.
I have not given specific cooking times as the weight will vary. So here are guide timings based on weight and preference in a fan oven. For medium after searing - 15 - 16 minutes per lb @ 175 Celsius 350 Fahrenheit For well done after searing - 19 - 21 minutes per lb. @ 175 Celsius 350 Fahrenheit
Preheat your oven to 250 Celsius 480 Fahrenheit. Place your beef bone side down in a large roasting tin (see image in slider above) the bone creates space under the joint to allow it to cook evenly and so the meat is not in contact with hot pan.
Place the beef into the hot oven for 15 minutes to sear then reduce the heat to the temperature guide above and roast tor the calculated time. So a 6lb joint for medium will have a cooking time in total including searing 111 minutes.
NOW THE IMPORTANT BIT. remove from the oven cover with foil and leave in a warm place to rest for half of the cooking time.
